bellicose language. this is really a disappointment on the part of the obama administration more broadly when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is

's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
. >> the obama administration officially ending all white house tours. >> but with a perfectly appropriate donation of a half million dollars, president obama will come to you. >> jonathan, that was karl rove's american crossroads, they're running that ad, they take that idea seriously. that they are in a position to criticize o.f.a. for raising money and supposedly selling influence. >> look, the 2012 campaign will be remembered for having built the largest, most sophisticated grassroots political organization of all time. you know what the average donation was to o.f.a.? $65. this is an army of millions of donors. the real question about it is whether the people who gave during the campaign will now step up and realize, they have to send in their contributions of $15, $20, $50 in order to advance the president's agenda. o.f.a. made a big mistake a couple of weeks ago in saying they would accept so-called dark money. which is money that you don't have to disclose. and they've now reversed themselves, that was a really bad idea. now that they're on record for transparency, if the people st
house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran

the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s
